Nature journaling

Nature Journaling - Spiritual Practices in Nature

June 22nd, 2018

Nature Journaling with church member and master naturalist Jan LaTona
Friday June 22nd 6-8 pm Fossil Creek Natural Area
Fossil Creek Reservoir Natural Area is a lovely quiet place set apart from the hustle and bustle of Fort Collins. There are lovely close up flora to observe and journal, as well as big water and mountain views.

Fossil Creek Reservoir, 3340 Carpenter Rd., Fort Collins, 80525 https://www.fcgov.com/naturalareas/finder/fcr Travel south from Harmony on Timberline Rd, turn east onto Carpenter (there is a signal at the intersection). Driving east on Carpenter the road will wind around a small pond, continue east and the entrance to the natural area is on the north side of the road.

What to bring: If you have favorite art supplies feel free to bring them, however all supplies will be provided for anyone to use. For your comfort you might want to bring something to sit on, although there are benches and table scattered around, a light jacket, water, perhaps a hat, bug spray. You may want to bring binoculars as the reservoir attracts many species of birds! Anything that makes an outdoor evening in June enjoyable and comfortable. There are shelters to protect us from the rain should the weather turn that way!

We met the 2nd Saturdays of June, July & August, 10:00 - 11:00 am at Rolland Moore Park
Take Rolland Moore Drive west from Shields and follow it all the way through the park. We'll be at the very end parking lot, to the right under the trees. Look for Lisa's blue "T'ai Chi Chih" sign along the drive. The end parking lot includes three handicap spots and it's a very short walk to the shaded area. If you need a chair, bring one and we will help you carry it over. In case of variable weather, we'll practice under a pavilion if available.

Gather

Group Link: Find your people.

August 9th, 2018

Foothills is a big church, but we know that deep transformation happens in small places. Why? Because it's through meaningful relationships that we grow.

If you want to grow, intentional relationships with people who have the same goal is a good place to start. This is why we are starting Gather Groups. Small groups of 8-12 people committed to deep relationships and growth in faith as Unitarian Universalists, and becoming a caring community.

Want relationships that go beyond small talk?

Come to Group Link where you will be guided through the process of joining a Gather Group.

GroupLink is a three-hour event where you can meet people with the goal of forming a Gather Group. A host and plenty of staff members and volunteers will be on hand to help you navigate the process of meeting others and forming a group.

When you register to attend GroupLink, we’ll match you with an initial connection group comprised of people who have similar group preferences. If the logistics of this group work for you, great! If they don’t work for you, volunteers will help you find a different group. We don't assign you to a group. You come to GroupLink to meet others and decide which group you would like to join.

Groups will meet weekly for about 8 weeks after GroupLink in members homes, at a time that works for everyone. After that, the group will decide if they want to continue. It's a try it before you buy it type experience.
